2023 PrideFest

The 44th annual PrideFest will be held June 9th – 11th, 2023 in the history East Village of Des Moines, Iowa.

PrideFest is free for all to attend.

The festival continues to grow. Last year, we welcomed over 40,000 attendees throughout the PrideFest weekend. This year, we are expecting our largest turnout yet! To better serve the community, we have created an automated process through an online shop. The online shop will allow you to register for the parade, purchase a Pride Guide ad, register for a PrideFest Vendor Booth, and donate either individually or as part of our 500 Loud & Proud program.
